Are cement sheets waterproof? While cement sheets may be classed as water resistant, they can’t be classed as waterproof. The reason for this is that cement sheets absorb moisture well and have excellent drying properties. They aren’t affected by exposure to water, but do allow vapour to pass through — you can waterproof a cement sheet with the addition of a waterproof membrane.
How long does cement sheeting last? Cement sheet typically lasts between 50 and 60 years depending on maintenance and the composition of the sheeting. Thickness tends to play a significant part in the longevity of your cement sheeting, so you might want to consider this when purchasing for your roof sheeting project.
